We thoroughly enjoyed out first visit to Il Lago. We loved the scallops and the pork osso bucco entrees, which were both specials. The pork was tender and loaded with flavor with the delicious sauce. The desserts were great. Very nice, cozy, casual restaurant.
Will certainly be back!
Met friends for dinner. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. Food and service excellent. Would definitely return and highly recommend this restaurant.
Thank you opentable for listing this as an option for us . . .we never would have found it on our own! Great surprise and we will go back. Delicious authentic Italian food in a cozy setting. BYOB and friendly staff complete the experience. Definitely try it!
Very quaint little restaurant. Pork chop Arrabiata was outstanding , as was the veal francaise. Nice warm bread with delicious garlic & herb flavored oil, yummy. Salad is included in entree! Overall excellent food, will definitely go back-again & again!
Went to dinner with friends, the service was excellent and the food was amazing. The rice balls were huge and delicious. Osso bucco , scallops and pork chops were great. Definitely plan to return.
Excellent service, well prepared food and ambiance that will take you...
A 10 all the way around....
Always a pleasure. I think others agree because there are more diners there every time we go back.
Enjoyed great food and good service!
One of my favorite local restaurants. Food and service are always very good and its BYOB. Great value and worth the drive from my hometown. I recommend Il Lago for a nice dinner experience. Also, Friday nights less crowded than Saturday.
Food was good but restaurant was to rustic and we got dressed up as thought it was more fine dining. Everytone was casual
Overall the food was good. Restaurant was understaffed and despite best efforts of waiter he was overwhelmed, yet pleasant. Would dine here again, but wouldn’t make a special trip.
Enjoyed this warm and inviting Italian spot- BYOB is nice and food was delicious- We both just felt that pasta should have been included with the veal parmigiana— but still look forward to returning.
We thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant ..widefinitely go back again !
This was out first visit and we went on a Wednesday when they have the tour of Italy special which is probably the best deal anywhere. Four course for 2 at a ridiculously low price and the food is good. I had a Flounder Francaise that was very good mu only disappointment was that nothing accompanied it. No vegetable or starch. I would prefer that you take off the 1st course and add some vegetables. Nonetheless the food was very good. I look forward to coming back and just having the regular menu. The people are nice, the service was very good. Its just a nice place that you can't help but want to try again. In the words of the Terminator, I'll be back!
Been there too many times to come up
With something new.
My husband and I were VERY VERY pleased with everything regarding this restaurant--We also own a business and it is very UPBEAT to be able to truly tell how nice something is and appreciated. The food was excellent--the employees were also great and the entire surrounding was very comfortable. We fully intend on returning many more times--and please send our compliments to the owner.
Loved the place, returning customer. I love there specials and tour menu for 2
weak service. Brought a great bottle of wine and they broke the cork, filter it into a plastic water pitcher. Not cool at all.
I was carbo loading for a road race, so I greatly appreciated the generous portions! The fresh baked hot bread with the seasoned, olive oil to dip it in was excellent. Pasta was perfectly done and the red sauce was delicious. Place was packed on a Saturday night, so consider making a reservation. Looking forward to eating there again!
Our meals were all excellent! My chicken Francaise was perfect ! Just the correct amount of lemon and lightly egg battered. Asparagus was done al dente! Our antipasto appetizers were ample and contains nice selections of meats and cheese.
Special salad and bread with infused olive oil were excellent. Entrees were okay, on the high side price wise, nice size portions. Attentive service.
As always Il Lago was up to its Outstanding standards! Food and Service was Outstanding!
Excellent food, service, company, and atmosphere. Nice surprise from a little place in a small town trying to make a comeback!!!
Small Italian bistro. BYOB. The food was very good. The service was great. It gets somewhat loud as the restaurant fills up.
I was surprised at the interior decor... Just not as great as it could be I guess...
Still... that doesn't effect the food or service.
We kind of stumbled upon this place and were very happy that they could accommodate us on short notice. The food was very good and our server, as well as the bus boy were very attentive. Being a BYOB is great too, since we like to bring wine from our cellar, if possible. We will definitely return and bring friends next time.
Food was delicious.
First time at this restaurant. Located on Bay Ave in Highlands, the outside is inviting. We had a 7:30 reservation and were seated promptly at that time. Started off with Rice Balls as the appetizer and they were good. Small but tasty salads along with bread were also brought to the table. My wife had the Penne Bolognese and I had the Chicken Parmesan. Both were good. I was disappointed the Chicken did not come with a small side of pasta but the waiter was clear to let me know that. All said, the people were friendly, service was OK, a bit noisy and the food was good. I will go back.
The food was excellent as was the service. I had the salmon stuffed with crabmeat and my husband had a flounder dish. The fish was very fresh and tasty. I also like that the restaurant is BYO. We’ll be back soon.
Great service from our server, Joe. This night we had specials … the rice balls appetizer was phenomenal; actually the 2 of us could not finish them and so we had some leftover. The pan-seared scallops and the Ossobucca were expertly crafted. It was a very enjoyable meal. On this Saturday evening, the noise level got a bit high volume at times but otherwise the ambiance was just fine for a casual dinner out. We will return.
Food was great !
Our first time there and we will return. Portions were very generous and food was very well prepared. Service was very attentive. Give it a try!
Food was very good and great value with BYOB. Owner and chef came out to our table twice to check in.
Only negative is it was hot with no A/C and tin ceiling deflects noise back down so it’s not quiet on a busy Saturday night. Recommended.
Very good BYOB Italian on Bay Street. Owner is very hands on and committed to providing great food and a comfortable atmosphere. Great for large parties or couples. Old school Italian.
Very good restaurant in a very Cool building!
Food was plenty and delicious. Would be great if they hired another waitress to help. The evening we were there there was only one waitress waitiing on tables, bussing tables and running the food.
Overall great restaurant with delicious food.
Cute restaurant, good food....a bit hot inside...
This was my 2nd time at IL LAGO. What a great meal! Awesome dining room! Very welcoming, classy setup. Very nice touch with the authentic Italian bread, seasoned dipping oil with garlic and herbs, and the server was very attentive. Great Marinara sauce with our calamari and the Flounder Special was very tasty! Highly recommend!
Food was excellent! Our server was very good, but a little forgetful.
Food was very good- but it’s often the details that matter- laminated menus? Butter in single pat plastic containers? Expected for a diner but really lowered the upscale dining experience we were seeking.
Been dinning there since it opened. Never disappoints. Tuesday and Wednesday fixed price nights are a great deal.
Noise level is the only complaint. To say it is high would be an understatement.
Actually, we have been going to this location since it was The Bay Ave. Trotria. It was the best. We miss it but the present staff does a great job.
The food was superb.
